Encouraging a work life balance – Ballannette Estate

Mar 20, 2017

chWell, this country view would help you to be healthier in mind, body and spirit during the working day. I was shown around Ballannette Estate last week – it serves as the working environment for a maintenance and construction company on the Isle of Man. It’s an inter-generational legacy and built in memory for the loss of a loved one. Far more than a working location, it’s an uplifting view of land reclaimed, ground re-turfed and ponds re-watered. Ideally, work shouldn’t just be a four letter word but a place where nature connects deeply with us to turn down our personal stress levels between 9 and 5, given half a chance. That owls nest and birds return is freely encouraged, with countless acres of natural grass lands being naturally re-seeded. With growing demand for a work life balance perhaps we should seek out a Manx Wellness Template to best uncover more areas where we can express ourselves. In time, we can all endeavour to construct a brighter future and more ‘working’ havens such as Ballannette http://www.manx.net/tv/mt-tv/watch/82152/wellness-incubation-centre
